Stories of their lives
We would like to record stories of some of the wonderful people who have shared our lives as allotment tenants. Perhaps they were a guiding light to newer growers, or a regular winner at veg shows, or a tireless volunteer in their site society. Or perhaps they were someone who was special to you, and who loved their allotment. Whatever the reason, if you know of a special allotment gardener who has passed on, and you would like to immortalise their memory on these pages, please contribute your stories.
“A man lives for as long as we carry him inside us
for as long as we carry the harvest of his dreams
for as long as we ourselves live
holding memories in common, a man lives”
(part of a poem by Brian Patten)
